A neoclassical, pure dance ballet and a perfect example of the Arpino style—high lifts, a flying pace, and classic beauty. This fast-paced and physically challenging ballet is set to Tchaikovsky’s “Variations on a Rococo Theme for Violoncello and Orchestra, op. 33.” Arpino re-created the ballet in 1985, after it had been out of active repertoire since 1976.
